(UK) – Festival cancelled due to Covid-19 crisis.

Organisers for the light festival Light Up Lancaster have announced that this year’s instalment of the event, due to take place this November, has been cancelled.

The decision comes “due to the ongoing situation regarding Covid-19”, and the continued uncertainty regarding the virus.

In a statement on the festival website, organisers said: “We are very sorry, as we know this is a much loved and well-attended event, but feel it is the right decision as we’re currently unaware of what the situation with Covid-19 will be like in November.

“Light Up Lancaster is all about creating such a lively and vibrant atmosphere, and managing social distancing would be extremely difficult.

“Together with partners, we will be doing everything in our power to develop the festival behind the scenes for the future and with your support, will be back stronger than ever.”
